Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, II Punto, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.

We went to Mariners with a group of over 40 of us. The service and quality of our lunch was superb and even more amazing as there were so many of us all at once! Of course we had all pre-ordered but our meals were freshly cooked and served piping hot. Yes there were a couple of dishes incorrect, but... More

Had lunch there with friends. Their wine list is second to none , the food is superb and the staff are very professional and courteous. You feel as though you are in France as the whole ambiance is relaxed but professional , great place to dine whether it is lunch or dinner. It is definitely worth the price they charge.

There is no doubt that the Mariners is a SUPERB restaurant. My partner took me there to celebrate my birthday and I had been wanting to go there for a while. Really wanted to sit upstairs but was told that was out of the question, which really disappointed me. My Gratin starter was fantastic but was slightly disappointed with the... More
